Haja o que houver 


Posted at 00:04 under MUSIC


i just have to show you this song with the portuguese group MADREDEUS, "HAJA O QUE HOUVER" (meaning something like "come what may"). i love the voice of the singer TERESA SALGUEIRO.

"Cada momento pior
Volta no vento por favor"

as if it was written for a butterfly.



=)


i will probably receive the mastered album during this week or early in the week after, i promise to post samples as soon as it's done. at the moment i'm finishing the CD cover, i'll post some images maybe tomorrow or tuesday.

Sweet presence 


Posted at 01:04 under MUSIC


IVAN LINS and SIMONE singing "DOCE PRESENA" ("sweet presence", written by Ivan Lins and Vitor Martins), a song that recently touched my heart. this recording doesn't have the best sound, but it's a wonderful song:

Wonderful world 


Posted at 13:25 under MUSIC


i stumbled across this wonderful recording of two of my favourite songs with the singer and ukulele player ISRAEL "IZ" KAMAKAWIWO'OLE from Hawaii, who died in 1997. towards the end i think the video shows pictures from the day when his ashes were scattered into the ocean. a very beautiful and laid-back recording!

OVER THE RAINBOW / WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD

Mix part 1 


Posted at 20:44 under MUSIC


we've finished 5 songs of the album this week, and will finish the rest at the end of next week! when i'm listening to these songs i feel incredibly happy and thankful for being able to express myself through music and words.

...because this music is my passion...

here are the new samples. now, all that's left is mastering.... mastering is like polish; adding some depth and brilliance to the finished product, to make it even better!


#1
BALANS
(Equilibrium)



#2
JABUTICABA
#3
ALLT HAR SIN TID
(Everything has its time)

these two songs are connected through the bird sounds in JABUTICABA. to give you an impression of the sound on the album, i put both songs in the same file for today.
the instrument that i play in the beginning of ALLT HAR SIN TID is a nicaraguan marimba.

I've got you under my skin 


Posted at 16:49 under MUSIC




my love for the songs of COLE PORTER is nothing new. neither my love for brazilian music. but this recording with IVAN LINS singing "I've got you under my skin" is just too beautiful to be true. it made me look at the song itself with completely new eyes.... eyes that are not too far away from bursting into tears ;)

of happiness of course! for being alive, for being able to watch the stars, hear the birds, feel the rain on my skin, smile to a stranger, completely understand the essence of every word in a conversation in three languages, for being alive here and now, for being able to accept the gifts of life, the everyday miracle of having a beating heart and an inspired mind, a smile that incorporates the whole being and embraces the whole world across oceans devastatingly deep and skies breathtakingly high.

we're here, somewhere in between.

Finalizing  


Posted at 20:48 under MUSIC


i'm currently finalizing the vocal tracks and the mix of the new album, and will PROBABLY be able to post some of the samples this week.

i'm sorry about the delay, but there's been so many things to take care of. most of them concerning music, but still...

we will play live this autumn, but i'll return with more details later. for these gigs i've been working on totally new swedish translations of brazilian songs, and i've also written some english lyrics for a couple of brazilian classics for another singer.

i would love to release a LIVE CD of this new little project, pinning the unique moment to the wall of time.

i think my mind is overactive. anyone knows if there is a remedy?

=)
